John Neumeier gets a museum at Hamburg: The town bought a building to set up a ballet institute to contain his huge ballet collection (he owns almost everything about Nijinsky, most of his paintings for example) and as an archive for his complete works. His unique and valuable collection consists of paintings, drawings, photographs, graphics, sculptures, figures, everyday objects, and also of a library on the history of dance, documents, manuscripts and autographs. The Hamburg Senate decided today to purchase a building at Mittelweg 55 in Hamburg to permanently secure the unique collection and the catalogue of his more than 170 ballets. It will be called “Institute John Neumeier” and is intended be an international place for discussing dance. Neumeier established a foundation in 2006 which will operate the new institue. The city provides 15 million euros for the purchase, renovation and conversion of the property. The choreographer is “pleased that my collection and my life's work have found a permanent home in my adopted home of Hamburg”, as he said.
Hi all, Could anyone let me know if there is any type of ballet museum in St. Petersburg? I have searched google and found Opera and Theatre museum but it only seem to have a very small section. Is there anything else that is a must see for ballet fans? We are going to see a ballet but would really love to find a museum if there is such a thing.
